A small truck, driven by a Marine with Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa 13.3, traverses the Arkansas mud during an advanced an “on and off-road driving techniques” course as part of pre-deployment training in Crawfordsville, Ark., May 7. SP-MAGTF Africa 13.3 is scheduled to deploy to Naval Air Station Sigonella, Italy, this summer where they will offer training and assistance in support of partner African nations. SP-MAGTF Africa is an enduring rotation of Marines and sailors whose mission is to strengthen U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa and U.S. AFRICOM’s ability to assist partner nations in addressing regional security challenges.
